F.C. Internazionale Milano, better known in the English-speaking world as Inter Milan FC, is one of the most decorated soccer teams on the planet and winners of the Champions League and the Europa League three times each.

Inter Milan is an iconic club not just in Italy but in all corners of the world. And it’s in one of those corners, the club has set up a new soccer academy to develop and source up and coming soccer talent – Canada.

Soccer is the most-watched sport globally and has slowly but surely gained recognition and fans in North America, where basketball, baseball, and ice hockey usually dominate the sporting landscape.

That interest has been perked through various factors, including accessibility, globalisation, and possibly emerging betting markets.

Both the U.S. and Canada have legalised some sports betting, allowing locals to bet on major soccer markets, including Inter’s games.

The INTER Academy Toronto

Much of Inter Milan FC’s success has stemmed from their youth squads – i.e., the Inter Milan Youth Sector – and their ability to scout and develop young soccer players.

This is a theme throughout all successful clubs, especially when having to buy the best players in their prime cost millions of dollars. Snapping them up early and weaving them into the fabric of the club’s culture has been a proven recipe for success.

And now Inter Milan FC and PRO Futbol have joined forces to create the INTER Academy Toronto, a new soccer youth development centre in North America and the first of its kind on the continent.

This new academy provides a valuable opportunity for talented youth soccer players in Canada to get noticed by one of the biggest clubs in the world while developing their own skills on and off the training pitch.

The academy will host children aged between 4 and 18 years old, overseen by some of the best youth soccer coaches in the game.

All of the academy’s coaches will boast international experience and will be sure to develop any player that walks into the academy.

The work that goes on will conform to the INTER Methodology of coaching and the long-standing but modernising footballing philosophy of the club.

What is the goal of INTER Academy Toronto?

The overarching goal of the INTER Academy Toronto is to develop players and find young Canadian soccer players that may have what it takes to become professional players.

The European professional leagues have seen an influx of players coming from North America and big clubs want to try and find these talents early than competing clubs.

In the process, the academy will also fly the flag of soccer in regions where it is not as popular as the rest of the world.

However, this won’t be the only aim of the academy. It will also create soccer competitions in communities, welcome students on internship programme’s at the centre and in Milan, and it will help create pathways to university scholarships for the most talented players.
